On this page, I have attempted to provide a simple explanation for some of the modelling terms which you may
encounter, but don't understand. If there is anything which remains unclear - PLEASE ASK!
TFP or TFCD
This stands for "time for prints" or "time for CD". The idea is that the model does not receive any money for her time spent
modelling, but is not charged by the photographer for his time in taking the photographs. She does receive an agreed
number of images for her own use. The photographer may also use the images as agreed with the model. This is supposed
to benefit newcomers as the photographer is actually "teaching" the model how to pose. The model needs to consider
two things before agreeing to this type of booking:
1). Does the photographer actually have the knowledge to help the model, and
2). If she does "TFP" assignments, will this put off other photographers who would otherwise be prepared to pay.
You are photographed without any clothes, but with your body posed in such a way that your intimate parts (nipples,
vagina etc.) are not seen on the photographs.
Nowadays a somewhat outdated term - originally meant to be the highest level of nudity (open legs) which would be
acceptable for publication in a UK mens magazine. Today, these magazines publish more explicit content.

which would be acceptable for publication in a USA mens magazine. Today, these magazines publish more explicit content.
This requires the model to pose naked and insert items into her vagina (i.e. a vibrator or dildo).
POV or Gonzo
POV = Point of View - both styles require sexually interaction with the photographer during the session. There are now
a large number of websites displaying solely this style of content.
